    3D Program

    I am a member of Melbourne PC User Group, we get a monthly magazine. The address label on the magazine that arrived today had the following message.

    Free Drawing Software

    News arrived too late for publication.
    Get your free copy of Bryce 3D graphics.
    It's available for download FREE until 6 September.
    From http://www.daz3d.com/program/bryce/bryce5free.php?
    and be sure to register it prior to the deadline.

    I have downloaded and there is no install, would be interested in comment

    Re: 3D Program

    Why do you need an install program?

    You download a ZIP file,
    which unZips to a folder Bryce5FreeVersionPC
    which itself contains three more folders and 13 files, including Bryce5.exe

    Have you tried running this?

    PS Are you worried that the program should have been called <big>Bruce</big>? <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Re: 3D Program

    Sorry John, my message was/has confused. I was trying to illustrate that there are no entries or dll's etc installed on the system.

    Yes I can run the program, but it loads in full screen mode and I cannot exit, it looks good for the real good graphic experts.

    Re: 3D Program

    I'm still puzzled because there are lots of DLLs there...

    Re: 3D Program

    I guess what I am trying to say is that I don't believe there is an install to the registry, the program runs from the exe file.

    Re: 3D Program

    I agree that their way of doing things harks back to the way it used to be done in the old days of DOS, but the advantage is that to get rid of the program you simply delete the top-level folder (which you may have put in Program Files, perhaps). No entry in Add/Remove Programs, and no registry entries to worry about!

    And, presumably, you can run it off a USB flash drive on any machine without having to install anything, so can use it without having administrator rights.
